THE MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS RESPONDS TO CLAIMS FROM FREEPORT ATTORNEY FRED SMITH
Nassau, Bahamas – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs takes note of a statement purportedly issued by Freeport Attorney Fred Smith about the Immigration policies of the Bahamas Government.
The statements by Mr. Smith are in grave error and are materially incorrect.
The Ministry is again concerned by certain actors in the population that appear to be intent on chasing headlines, seeking to create public hysteria and resorting to misinformation in order to do so. Their language is intemperate, inflammatory and the claims regarding the immigration policy are inaccurate.
There has been no breach of the law and no violation of anyone’s constitutional rights, sanctioned by the Bahamas Government in the enforcement of the country’s immigration laws.
That is not the policy of the government.
